EVENT: St Georges Day Extravaganza

Saturday 23rd April

10am – 5pm

Tamworth Castle Grounds
B79 7NA


We are really proud to be able to attend a really spectacular event here in our hometown of Tamworth.

Tamworth’s popular St Georges Day Extravaganza is back for 2022 with an exciting new line-up of entertainment set to take over the Castle Grounds, with medieval-themed fun for the whole family on Saturday, April 23, from 10am – 5pm.

The line-up will include all the festival favourites that have led to the event becoming well-known up and down the country, such as jousting, archery, a living history camp, walk-about medieval grave diggers comedy, stalls, fairground rides and children’s activities.

Come and meet St George and the amazing new dragon for 2022. Soaring at 3.5 m long and 2.3 m high, this animatronic dragon will amaze children and adults with his roaring, tail swinging and eye movements; enthralling the crowd as he roams around the Castle Grounds.

The Grand Medieval Joust is back by popular demand. Festival-goers will be able to watch the action unfold as competing knights on horseback take to the main arena to show off their jousting skills. Fun displays are guaranteed, full of laughs and action, trick riding and stunts, with skilled performances from stunning horses and knights in shining armour. Throughout the day knights will also demonstrate the variety of weapons and combat methods used during medieval skirmishes.

Other entertainment and activities for the whole family include workshops, displays, entertainment and a medieval encampment featuring equipment and living history demonstrations evident during the period.
